It was bound to happen...

Yes, that's a LIVE snake.

In my son's hands.

Found in my yard (and released back into the yard!)

I'm not sure which of the above statements freaks me out the most. (Gotta love his friend in the backgound, he wasn't getting too close either!)

BS (Before Snake), Elise and I had a girl's day out. I let her decide what we were going to do and let her set the pace for the day. No hurrying her to do the things I felt like I had to do. The main purpose of the trip was to give her a pre-birthday trip to Libby Lu. This place is so over the top for me, but she loves it. :)

While the girls were out, the boys went to a big equipment show. They got to climb all over these types of machines and ride up in a crane.

Snakes huh? Not so much for me those things. I didn't like them growing up, & my opinion is pretty much the same as an adult. I don't know how you do it Gretchen.

I can't believe that Elise & the rest of our girls are getting ready to turn 6. I'm always amazed by them. Erin hasn't noticed Libby Lu yet even though we pass it whenever we're in the mall. Then again, she's not much of a girly girl. I have to bribe her to wear a dress.

Love the big machines!

Nice snake.... not!

Caterpillar equipment, Gretchen, I will work in that company soon.

Eee-gads - I'd freaked if one of my kiddos were holding a snake - and then to let it go in my yard again??? I shiver at the thought! I'm sure Elise had fun at Libby Lu's - Jade has informed me that is where she is having her birthday party in July!
